Cedar Point has introduced GateKeeper — a new roller coaster for 2013 that will change the entrance of the park.
Reaching speeds of up to 67 miles per hours, riders will be seated out to the sides of this winged coaster for a unique ride experience. It will travel 4,164 linear feet in a single trip with a ride time of 2 minutes and 40 seconds.
"Roller coasters really define who we are at Cedar Point," said Cedar Point Vice President and General Manager John Hildebrandt. "They are our calling card if you will."
